1h50min amidst a drizzle – it feels good but it was very tiring. but it feels good indeed…need to go wash teh bike later again what a pain….
feeling very tired now at home – should i go listen to the election rally later?
Terry from TI giving a pretty good presentation here. hmm.

did a decent one today – quite interesting – swimming with the fists clenched i/o pulling with the palms. makes a hell of a diff – SPL raised from 49-ish to 55-60! 37min worth of it which was surprisingly fast- end of it felt much better once u have the palms available – however no noticeable improvement though i definitely feel the catch+resistance of the water better.
just peeping ard the pool – it’s funny how so many people (incl me!!) have no cencept of the pull, catch, streamline…it is just splash splash splash….
the secretary at work wearing some really thing sleeveless shirt which really emphasised her neat boobs and nice skin. getting a hard on thinking abt it….

1h47 min so just 2min short of a 7min/km pace.
first 12km was a breeze – felt really light but the last 3km was a killer – muscles were tight and the knees felt rough.
not sure why – either cos i didn’t have a good warmup or maybe i didn;t break enough – having a few min of walk last time after 7.5//5//5 seems much better in terms of pain/comfort.
body is very sore now…want to sleep….

this fella has a nice stroke
gonna try swimming with fists next session – get my rotation+catch going!
was driving home today – another 1h30min ride, traffic is just a orgy. why is everyone driving as if it is a “i dare u to bump into me causing an accident”??? it’s sick!

so market street carpark is getting tear down to make way for a supposedly Grade A building. Damn the idea. so now hundreds of car owners are scurrying ard trying to find a carpark near Raffles Place.
Never really knew there’s so much history behind Market Street Carpark though – first MSCP in singapore i think. I really like the carpark – nice and airy and very nice large lots – none of those hot til u drop stories where u sweat walking the few seconds to the stairs/lift.
Anyway walked ard an extremely hot lunchtime – only to find golden shoe, china square all full- finally found far east square available – 3mths for 795SGD which is fairly cheap to be honest. i’m actually quite looking forward to the change in scenery – plenty of pretty chicks walking ard as well…=P
didnlt sleep well last night – must be the mum bustup still affecting me…did a 40min swim today – averaging ard 47-49 SPL at 1:40min – decided to stop once the spl slipped to >50…body was just too tired after the lack of sleep+exertions on the run/bike over weekend. Looking fwd to the rest day tom!!

had a major one with the Mum in the car driving her back.
i really dun understand why she has to be so fucking negative about everything. even running??? all my life, whatever fucking thing i do, she has been the first one to say “nononono”,”dun dun dun dun”. it’s like the fucking brain just got soaked in a bucket of negativity or something. so much so that i just want to stay in my room forever – cos everything she says is just pure negative. Fucking hate it. waiting for the 1mio dollar mark, snapshot it, and off i go for a new apartment. It’s utter bliss that she’s staying with the Sister….
i really envy people with support in their life – people who are positive and encouraging. the older i get, the more i wonder – why did dad commit adultery back then? to some extent, i think i know why…the whole family was shunting him, the wife was a fucking nagger who;s totally negative about everything stinking thing. obviously u jump into some love when it’s available.
i really gotta think abt myself and what i want in the marriage….
too nice. is sometimes not a good thing…

went for a ride today after washing the bike.
1h 50min in all – at one stage the ride was just so nice in the drops – it was almost effortless. had to brake a lot at ECP+Changi beach – people were just weaving in and out terribly…
neck and upper back definitely feeling the pos now – got to do it more to get the muscle groups to adapt. In all a wonderfully exhausting weekend – 1h of swim (2.5km?), 15km run, and 2* 42km rides…
April 23, 2011
did the weekly long run
15km in 1h50min so 7min 20s / km
rather slow but stopped plenty to replenish water+stretch ard. there was amazingly no pain as a result of that (i think so!)
body feeling the effect of the cycling+run now… it’s scary to think that 20km means all the way down the ECP. And back…

I love the bike.
42km in 1h50min – quite a lot of improvement for sure and i feel much more room for improvements.
surprisingly, the drops feel rather easy -in fact it feels better than being on the hoods except for the neck area having to raise the head to look forward (else i’m gonna crash!!)
I love the Giant TCR Advanced!!!!

totally wasted day in the office – eurusd was 15pips wide on the screen at one stage…that says a lot….half way thru the day i was thkning if only i can be cycling or swimming…
went back home and damn it was raining – took a power nap waiting for the rain to stop…
and it was a fantastic swim just now. definitely felt a better pull – i was doing 47-49 SPL with 1:40 tempo – degenerating into 51 in the latter stages. allin did a 1hr swim and it was really good. felt the back and arms tire so decided to end it for the day…
need definitely to work on the left hand pull – the right hand felt so much better with the emphasis on facing the arm backwards+vertical but the left arm definitely felt less efficient.
and so…looking fwd to doing a 15km this weekend…need to pickup the distance ahead of the passion 25km run…
